Abstract

The prevalence of televised debates is growing in popularity among democracies. This study examines the similarities and differences in format, style, journalistic involvement, and issues covered in the first presidential debate of the 2000 U.S. election campaign in October in Boston and the Greek Prime Minister debate of March 2000 held in Athens. A major theme is the dynamics of establishing the rules governing the debate in Greece and the role of the Presidential Commission in the United States as a prototype for such structure.
